Lionel Richie is (again) confirmed for EDP Cool Jazz

The artist was the first name for the 2020 edition, which was canceled. Return to Portugal in July 2022.

It’s the return to EDP Cool Jazz.

At a time when there was still no talk of Covid-19, the first name for the EDP Cool Jazz Edition in the following year appeared in November 2019: Lionel Richie. The festival would be canceled in 2020 and the same thing happened in March of this year. The next issue, the one in 2022, is already being planned and Richie is back on the poster.

“Hello, are you looking for me?” With this question asked by the artist himself, EDP Cool Jazz confirmed the singer’s return to the festival on this Tuesday morning, July 13th. The musician had already performed at this festival in 2015, when it was still taking place in the Jardins do Marquês de Pombal and in the Parque dos Poetas in Oeiras.

In March of this year, the organization announced that the event would be postponed again due to the pandemic. It is scheduled for July 2022 and will take place at the Manuel Possolo Hippodrome in Cascais. Tickets are on sale now, and those purchased for canceled editions apply to these new ones.

In addition to Lionel Richie, there are already further confirmations for the next EDP Cool Jazz. This is the case with John Legend, Jorge Ben Jor and Yann Tiersen.
